Convert SDI video to an NDI stream


Convert SDI video to an NDI stream with the Pro Convert SDI 4K Plus video signal converter from Magewell.


Key Features

  • Convert 4K SDI Video to NDI Stream
  • 1 x SDI Input, 1 x SDI Loop-Through
  • 1 x RJ45 + PoE NDI Output
  • 6G/3G/HD/SD-SDI Supported


  • Pro Convert SDI 4K features one SDI input and one SDI loop-through output with eight channels of embedded audio, and it supports SDI input up to DCI 4K 4096 x 2160 video at 30 fps. The RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet port supports encoded NDI output up to DCI 4K 4096 x 2160 8-bit 4:2:2 video at 60 fps.


  • The SDI loop-through allows you to view your input on a monitor while your NDI-encoded stream can be sent to a variety of NDI-compatible encoding or streaming applications such as OBS, XSplit, vMix, Wirecast, and others via Ethernet. The mini DIN-8 tally/PTZ port provides tally input to pass-through, as well as for use with the unit's status LEDs. The LEDs also indicate power, output, and input signal status.


  • The unit is powered by a 5V power adapter connected to its USB 2.0 Type-B port or via PoE over its RJ45 port. The Pro Convert can be managed with a web UI to configure settings and to perform firmware updates via the USB port. A 1/4"-20 mounting thread allows you to mount the unit in a rack, with a bracket, or on a stand. Included with the Pro Convert are a USB cable, a 5V power adapter, a mini DIN-8 cable, and an L-bracket for mounting.
